A new lease of life for my books

As you know, I was bitterly disappointed when Satalyte shut up shop as it might have meant the end of my admittedly short career as a publi...

About Me

My photo
I am a writer, editor, reviewer and dance teacher based in Perth, Western Australia.

My books

The first two novels of my trilogy, The Talismans, are not available as e-books at present, but I expect to get them back online shortly. However, I do have paperbacks of The Dagger of Dresnia at the low price of $25 including postage within Australia. I also have a short story, 'La Belle Dame', in print - see Mythic Resonance below. The best way to contact me is via Facebook!

Buy The Talismans

The first two books of The Talismans trilogy were published by Satalyte Publications, which, sadly, has gone out of business. I hope to see my books back on Amazon under a new publisher in the near future.

The West Country

I've been in Devon for several days now, staying with my sister Clare. This is a very pretty part of England but I haven't had much chance to appreciate it yet because of rain and lingering jetlag. I used to get over long haul flights in about three days but this one has taken a week and I feel as if I'm only just getting back to normal. I need to go to bed early, wake up extraordinarily early and am a right Grumpy Old Woman most of the waking hours.

Communications have become difficult. I didn't realise - or had forgotten - that people here have to pay for timed local phone calls and if your host is on dial-up that puts a severe limit on the amount of time you can spend on web mail and browsing. I'm on a public computer in the Topsham library right now, paying $1.50 (about $AUS3.75) per half hour. This will probably be an ongoing problem, so my blogging might be a bit intermittent for a while!

I hope you are all well and happy. Whether I post or not, I'm thinking of you!

Thanks, guys. I had a great birthday and will blog it later. I'm just about over the jetlag now and feeling rather more human:-)
